Here's a rant about the MOC, which is obviously my entry for the Self-MOC Off Tournament entry round.
This is a representation of a manifestation of a sort of "inner dark" for Pirai. It draws from his guilt at being one of the last surviving Fe-Matoran/Fe-Toa, and from the hidden potential of his sheer destructive power of a Toa of Iron, etc.
That sounded way too dramatic.
Anyway, it's a lot like NegaScott, if you know what I'm talking about, which you probably don't, and should google. An evil side ("twin") that you think you'll have to fight, but you really just get rid of by coming to terms with it, and eventually it'll end up as your friend or something.
Iggy's the only one who gives a damn about backstory, so I don't know why I added all that up there. Meh.
Physical similarities of the MOC include upper right arm, torso, head, upper legs and knees, feet, awesomeness, and being badass. Intentional differences (because opposites!) include mostly black armor (original has no black parts at all), cannon arm, no heartlight. Anyway I kinda figured it was a bad idea to reuse the exact same designs, but being lazy and halfassed, I did it anyway... the "twin" has the exact same waist design, exact same upper leg design (minus one piece of armor because I have no black half bushings), same internal head design, same upper arm design, and, uh, the same awesomeness design as the normal Pirai.
I wouldn't have used these colors but I have no black hockey heads and no green ones... I guess I can just explain the colors being the way they are because black and orange is the default scheme for a Toa of Iron, and Pirai isn't those colors (if you couldn't tell), so it's the whole inner evil/self thing all over again.
He isn't named this, but for ease of commenting, feel free to call him Iarip, Dark Pirai, NegaPirai, etc.


If you somehow haven't noticed, I've been expanding my reach.
-> flickr (add me as a contact!)
-> BZPower (add me as a friend!)
-> YouTube (comment/like/subscribe!)
-> CBW (er... nothing to do there really)


Before ANYONE comments on the head, yes, I obviously did change it (along with much of the Resurgent form build). This change happened quite soon after I posted the previous version of Pirai in November. The only reason for the wolf head was that it looked kinda cool; it had no significance to me. People had pointed out that the wolf helmet was too small on the body, which I agreed with, and I had some alternate plans anyway. So here we are; new head. It's here to stay, so if you don't like it, you'd better deal with it. Pirai is otherwise the same.


Again, just want to say, good luck to everyone in the SMOT! If you haven't heard about it, I encourage you to compete- there's still time to join!


Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.

Just have to say, both of these guys look incredible, but there is something outside of the MOCs that makes them look great together, at least for the last two pictures. The lighting. Half of the picture is bright on Pirai's side, but the other half is dark on Nemesis's side. It. Is. EPIC.

(Reviewed this m'self back in Jan '13)Two of the most elegantly filled, greebled and proportioned figureMOCs I've ever seen. It takes a little foresight to PLAN closure like that. I can see the time spent fit/refit/refit again, etc. RESPECT. Cheers, Chrono~ Good luck in the run! =)(and GRATZ on latest MoTD!)

After seeing this was made after resurgent i realized this was the upgrade ad its epic i cant believe resurgent has more favorites than these these where scaled and had better proportions. Ahh moc pages your best mocs may never be seen because your older ones are older and have had more time to develop attention.

Very awesome..."block...head"... :P The build is really epic. The only downside is that much of the orange dude seems to be, or is a copy of Pirai, which kinda kills the creativity for me.

Hey chro I have a very important question.where is that head from.Also I think you should make a custom wolf head. I think the wolf head suits you.Wolfs are silent,smart,And skillfull which is what what you are.That and the fact that a custom wolf head would be awesome :P

Just what I'd expect from you. Tall, incredible Technic-y while still looking organic.

It just looks so blank, I guess. It looks cool, but I think it might be a little too generic for a selfMOC.

Quoting Daniel Floyd I love both of them! They seem just so perfect from the feet to the neck, and that's where I complain. Honestly Pirai looked cooler with the wolf head even though it might have been a hair on the small side( it also makes you lose the cool title"the Iron Wolf")PS:did you get a new camera or something because your reds don't look pink anymore?
A hair? It was much too small. This is proportionate, and fits me better as a builder. I'll leave the wolf heads to the people obsessed with dogs, thank you very much. Not a new camera, just got access to a better one temporarily.
Quoting Demontile the Chaos god of Darkness and ? The wolf head made Pirai a legend, The Iron Wolf Still nice job
Not really. Thanks anyway.
Quoting Toa Infernum Brain Attack Breez's maybe? I dunno know.
Both that and the Bulk helmet are way too small and hard to connect properly. And how is this less expressionless than the wolf helmet? :I

How'd your photos get so good? Sweet designs! I head the last bit, but me no likey the new head. :(. Just looks so expressionless. I'm trying to think of another silver or red mask that'd look cool. Brain Attack Breez's maybe? I dunno know.

Awesome my friend! I really like the other Parai, he looks pretty formiddable. I feel that, although the new Mask itself doesn't look too bad, I feel that the Wolf mask looked better on him, although it may have been a bit small (and yes, I did read the text at the bottom about it)
  January 22, 2013
Really like both of them. And I may not be a judge, a Bio-big shot, or an anybody to be honest, but I must say that I absolutely hate Pirai's new head. The old one may have been too small, but at least it showed some character. This one just looks like a lump stuck on the shoulders...but meh, as I said, great additions.

Thanks Gale. Good luck to you too!
Quoting Max W. Idk how I feel about the head. I thin kit looks better, but doesn't have that sense of self that the wolf mask did. Even though the new head fits his form more appropriately, it's just not the Iron Wolf. Anyways, good work on both Pirai and Iarip.
That's just the thing- it didn't have any sense of self for me. The only reason for the wolf head was that it looked good, not that I liked wolves or anything. So I decided to change it to something that I liked better.

Thanks, Mac. Great series, huh? :)
Quoting Jeremy S. Wow Pirai plays hockey now. JK, but seriously, who cares if the wolf head was a bit too small. His nickname doesn't even fit anymore. Waahhhhh!
I did. Notice how I didn't call him by that name once on this page. There was a reason for that. ;)

Quoting Callan Lord of Fire Great work on these two man! Evil Pirai is overall fantastic, but there's one issue about the head that works on him but not on Pirai. The color coordination of black/orange on the evil one works just fine, but the pure red head in comparison with the smaller red highlights throughout the rest of him kinda looks odd. Still, this is a great entry, and I hope to do battle with you again this year! :)
Hmm. I think there's enough red areas on the ankles, knees, back, etc. Anyway, yeah, see you in... round two? three? I don't know. XD

I'm sorry man, but that head feels way off for me. I really liked that wolf mask, it was the perfect touch and gave Pirai that unique look to him. If you had stuck with the wolf mask, you could have used the tiger or bear mask for Nega Pirai, and it would have looked great with these MOCs. Other than my two cents here, as usual, awesome build, I actually think you could have done a few more touches to Nega Pirai, but it's still good. Scott Pilgrim reference FTW. ^_^ Luck to you pal, we've got some stiff competition.
